Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln. Volume 3.
Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.

To Simon Cameron [1]

Hon: Simon Cameron: New-York.
Dear Sir Feb. 26. 1860

I write this to say the card of yourself, and Hon. David Wilmot, was handed me yesterday at Philadelphia, just as I was leaving for this city. I barely had time to step over to the Girard, where I learned that you and he were not at your rooms. I regret that being so near, we did not meet; but hope we may yet meet before a great while.

Will you please forward the inclosed to Mr. Wilmot, as I do not remember his address? [2] Yours truly A. LINCOLN.
